 Since the time between talks is in the range of a few minutes (5 at best),
 we can't expect people to be very efficient in looking up maps.

 We need to have incremental directions at every place to guide folks
plus a "You are here" kind of map in front of every hall which details
the position of this hall in relation to every other hall. Plus volunteers
to help.

Last year we had a lot of issues with people trying to find the
2nd building from the main building since we didn't do some of these
basic things. I am hoping it will be better this year cuz of the rather
longer gap between talks but it is better to prepare well.
